“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me”. Alex Kingston reads Daphne du Maurier’s classic tale of love, loss, tragedy and revenge.
Daphne du Maurier’s young heroine meets the charming Maxim de Winter and despite her youth, they marry and go to Manderley, his home in Cornwall. There, the sinister housekeeper Mrs Danvers and the mystery she keeps alive of his first wife Rebecca – said to have drowned at sea – threatens to overwhelm the marriage.
